Since we started working on ‘Lights on the Horizon’, it’s been a rollercoaster of fun, hard work, pride, precarious moments, and everything in between. We have gathered our favourite facts about the book.
We’d love you to share our crazier moments and interesting snippets, and if you enjoy these, let us know, and we will add more. So, without further ado…
Did you know…
We were as surprised as he was…

… that ALL proceeds of the book go to the hardworking healthcare workers in the HSE (Mater Foundation) and NHS?
Our warm and cosy ‘warehouse’, complete with original painting, used to be a living room. It also features an open fireplace (not in picture). And yes, the sun was shining in Ireland that day…
… that the ‘warehouse’ in West Cork is a converted living room, from which all the orders are sent, worldwide.
… that to date, we have shipped the book to most counties in Ireland and Northern Ireland, as well as the US, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Austria, The Netherlands, China and the UK.
…that there were a number of covers which were on the longlist, which didn’t make it through? Only one of these was on the shortlist. Can you guess which one?
…that we sold just under 200 copies in two months? We are hoping to get to 500 by the end of 2021, and we’d be over the moon if you helped us get there. To order, click
